Hi reddit, I'm Steve Bradbury, a professor of environmental toxicology at Iowa State University. My research spans pesticide resistance management, pollination services and monarch butterfly conservation, and sustainable agriculture. I also had a long career at the Environmental Protection Agency. I served on the National Academies committee that wrote the report on future biotechnology products. I'm Farren Isaacs, assistant professor of molecular, cellular, and developmental biology at Yale University. My research focuses on using foundational genomic and biomolecular engineering technologies to develop new genetic codes. I served on the National Academies committee. We're talking about the landscape of future biotechnology products and the capacity, expertise, and tools of the U.S. regulatory system that oversees those products. We will be back at 1 pm ET to answer your questions, Ask us anything! You can read about more about our committee's work and download our report here.
